Thursday, April 30th is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. There are so many pets that are looking for their forever loving home. Many pets end up in shelters not sure why they were left and just want to be loved again. Not only does adopting a shelter pet give the pet a new best friend but it also gives you a new best friend.
If you are not ready to adopt a new friend there are other ways to help. Fostering is always a great option. By fostering a shelter pet that allows the pet to be in a loving home and their true personality can come out making it easier for people who are ready to adopt to see the true personality of the pet. Fostering is also a big help to the shelters. A Lot of shelters look for volunteers, people to help take care of the dogs. Donating is a great way to help so many shelters need as much funding help as they can get to keep the pets healthy. Following shelters on social media and sharing the pet stories are a huge help to the shelters and pets.
If you’re looking to adopt, foster, volunteer, donate, or share on social media here are some local shelters:
